The Land of Eden (blacknwhite.net) heeft wat zitten babbelen met Peter Molyneux, die momenteel met z'n makkers van Lionhead het spelletje 'Black & White' in elkaar aan het knutselen is. Vooral de AI van B&W wordt er vet, zo blijkt ook uit dit stukje plakwerk uit het interview:
Will there be revolts in B&W when you don't do a good job guarding your villagers against the enemy, will there become "leaders" who try to undermine your society or will people try to convince others to leave with them and if so.
Yes definately - in fact what will happen is that, um, if you and I were two god on different sides of the landscape and there was a small tribe between us that we both want on our faith - it is gonna be just as historical as it was, if you look at the primitive tribes and early religions, including Christianity, there is a lot of swapping religions when one god seems to be better than another or more impressive than another.the little people are innocent to believe that that spell you do say over there, they will think "God that's bloody impressive isnt it" and they will start converting to your faith. So if you and I were competing over a village - you might send a missionary to help them out and to be really nice to them and they will start believing in you, and then you ignore them for a while and their leader comes up and asks you for help with food and stuff and you ignore them - they will start to lose faith in you because your ignoring them - then when I come along with my skeleton army and start beating up all the people they are gonna start to think "oh maybe this god is more powerful" and they will lose more and more faith until that tribe becomes mine rather than yours!
